Total miles driven in RV 9,773

Total miles driven in auto 9,121

Total days on trip - 239

Cost/Day 118.19

This was about 15% higher than in previous years. Most of it is due to higher diesel prices (close to $4/gal for entire trip), significant repairs (3,869.99) and maintenance (1,772.40) on the Mothership. Without the repairs the daily cost would have been 101.99/day which is similar to prior years. Hopefully those large repairs will not be of a recurring nature and the maintenance should also be less on future trips as I reset the mileage on all liquids and filters.
